A Calgary woman has pleaded guilty to causing an indignation of a body after leaving her newborn daughter’s body in a container in 2017.
According to an agreed-upon statement of facts read in court by Crown Prosecutor Vicki Faulkner, Nina Albright, who was 19 at the time, admitted giving birth to a full-term baby girl at her parents’ home on Christmas Eve.
Albright told police the baby was alive when she was born, but stopped breathing shortly after.
She tried to perform CPR but did not call 911 because she was hiding the pregnancy.
The statement said she put the baby in a plastic bag, called her then-boyfriend, who was not the baby’s father, and told him she had had a miscarriage.

They drove to the northwestern neighborhood of Bowness, where Albright left the baby in a container at a community recycling site.
He offered to take her to a clinic, but she said it was not necessary and said she was only about three months old.
The infant was found by a man handing over garbage, who alerted police, but the baby was dead when they arrived.
Doctors concluded that the child was born alive, but could not determine the cause of death.
Albright is also accused of not taking care of life’s necessities. She pleaded not guilty to the charge.
Her sentencing is scheduled for March 16.
Albright is not in custody.
